Cairo: Dinner Cruise on the Nile River with Entertainment
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4 hours
Everything was very easy. Our driver and tour guide (Bassant) we’re right on time waiting for us in the lobby of our hotel. We enjoyed the sights on the way to the dinner cruise and got to spend extra time with Bassant waiting for the boat to arrive...traffic was light that day. She stayed on board to help with anything we needed but we had a table to ourselves. Beverages are not included and we only had water and one drink, so we did not get a lot of attention from the waiters like the big drinkers did, but we did not mind that. The food was delicious, not a 5 star hotel meal but all very tasty. The singers, dancers and performers were just fabulous and the other guests dancing made it a lot more fun as well. Bassant took us up to the deck for the view and pictures and got us safely back to our hotel. Being in the Nile was simply wonderful and everyone was very nice and fun! I definitely recommend this tour...a great deal for sure. They take American cash for drinks and tips as well.
The experience was awesome! Actually, I would like to give 5 star to the travel agency for being so on top of my reservation. I made a mistake with my booking and they were awesome to fix it quickly. Quick responses and compared to so many other travel agencies, they were cheaper. The guy who came to pick me up was awesome. He took care of the table etc. The entertainment consisted of sufi dance, belly dance and some music. Sufi (traditional dance) was awesome so was the belly dancing. The performers will come and take pictures with you and charge you for print outs. You are not allowed to take selfies from your phone. Food was good too.
Our guide Amir way so great! Couldnt have asked for more. Such a cool and down to earth guy. Such an amazing experience and a good way to acquaint with the culture. Our driver was on time. Drove very safe. When we got there, the staff was very courteous and helpful. The food was amazing. So much to choose from and all local food. The singing was cool. The staff was attentive through out the whole thing as was our guide. He chatted with us, gave us some history about the Nile River and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed the view from the top of the boat as well.
We are group of 7 person on Andrea Memphis. ENTERTAINMENT is excellent except that, I was expecting a Egyptian Belly Dancer. None the less, still was a good show. The Tanoura Dance was funny with skits, a bit corny but still entertaining. The singer was superb, I thought they were playing a recorded song, nice. I got to play the very heavy tambourine, I also get to join the belly dancing and tanoura dancing. Thank you Emo Tours btw.
We had Hazem as our tour guide, he was extremely helpful with everything we needed including stopping for us to get a SIM card for our phone. We were so lucky to get the chance to enjoy a Egyptian wedding on the dinner cruise. Hazem has been involved with setting up all our tours in Cairo, he even took him time to take us shopping one evening. I highly recommend EMO tours for any of your Egypt adventures!! Thank you Hazem
